In Road Runner, the player takes control of the Road Runner. The Road Runner must run along the road, avoiding trucks, landmines, falling rocks, etc. and also not get caught by Wile E. Coyote. The Road Runner must also eat birdseed along the way or he will become faint and Wile E. will catch him.
The Road Runner can earn points for eating the birdseed and also by making Wile E. get hit by trucks, falling rocks, etc.
The Atari 2600 version has a difference from the other versions, in that the Road Runner isn't required to eat the birdseed but can do so for the points.

Its not a game to run from
I used the arrow keys to move road runner around. I had trouble controlling road runner because I was pressing and holding the arrow key in the direction I wanted to go.
But, road runner keeps going after you press the arrow key in the direction you want. So when I stopped holding down the key it was very easy to move road runner to get the seeds or avoid cars. Its not like most games where you have to hold a key to down the whole time to keep the character going in a certain direction. That is when the game became fun.
I liked the graphics and sound. Though the sound might become annoying after awhile. Very fun.
